Surrey RCMP is looking to identify a witness to a suspicious occurrence that occurred near an elementary school on Monday morning.

On April 17, 2023, at approximately 11:45 a.m. Surrey RCMP received a report that a man who was not known offered a 13-year-old student a ride to school. The brief interaction took place in the 8600-block 159 Street at approximately 8:20 a.m. and was interrupted by a woman walking her dog.

The witness is described as a woman in her 20’s, with brown hair, wearing a black coat and walking a small beige poodle. The witness had a brief interaction with the youth after the man drove away. Investigators are looking to identify and speak with the witness to advance the investigation.

The man that approached the youth is described as a black male, 30-40 years old, clean-shaven driving a black SUV.

The intentions of this man are unknown and investigators are working to identify all involved parties in order to determine the intent of the interaction, says Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer, Corporal Vanessa Munn. We are asking anyone with information to reach out to police.

Anyone with information or video surveillance from the area is asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
